Harry Maguire vows to fight for Man United future after ‘cowardly’ bomb threat fiasco

Harry Maguire has defiantly said a horrendous bomb threat at his home will not force him out of Manchester United.

The Man United defender has found himself at the centre of a lot of criticism this season. For instance, England fans booed Maguire during their international friendly against the Ivory Coast.

In addition, fans and critics believe Maguire is one of the main culprits behind Man United’s poor season. Man United’s defence, which Maguire leads, has kept just seven clean sheets in the Premier League this season. Most importantly, he has captained the side in some terrible performances.

No game more clearly showed United’s struggles more than their 4-0 loss to Liverpool on Tuesday night. As has often been the case, Maguire came under fire from fans for the poor performance and brutal failure.

However, some have taken it too far this time by sending a disgusting bomb threat to Harry Maguire.

Bomb threat at the home of Harry Maguire

The England international reportedly received an email claiming that an explosive device was at his home in Cheshire, where Maguire lives with his family. Authorities have not released the content of the message, just that there was a threat.

Man United’s captain reported the incident to the police. A statement from Cheshire police said the following. “On Wednesday, 20 April, Cheshire Police were called to reports of a bomb threat at an address in the Wilmslow area.

“No suspicious items were found during the search. An investigation into the bomb threat remains ongoing, and no arrests have been made at this time.”

Authorities always take such a threat very seriously. As a result, police also used sniffer dogs to ensure there was no explosive.

Man United captain’s defiance

The terrifying situation has not deterred Maguire from giving his all for his club. A close source to Harry Maguire said that the bomb threat would not make him leave Old Trafford.

“Harry will not be forced out of Manchester United by this kind of threat,” the source told The Sun.

“His number one priority will always be the safety of his family, but he’s also got the strength of character to deal with this. It looks like the work of some cowardly fan. If that proves to be the case, they are an utter disgrace to the name of this proud football club.”

As he prepares for a key game this weekend, Maguire will look to put the terrifying ordeal behind him. Man United play Arsenal on Saturday in a massive game for both sides’ top-four hopes.
